How to manage the state government relations program for a health care manufacturing coalition.
Stateside directed an effort to defeat model legislation:
- We developed a strategic plan for the state program.
- We monitored state legislation for priority issues.
- We coordinated planning calls with members.
- We coordinated advocacy efforts in the states.
- We supported advocacy efforts at state officials Groups meetings.
- We recommended lobbyists.
- We prepared testimony and comments letters to policymakers and legislative and regulatory committees and forums.
The coalition has increased its profile among state officials and has been successful in defending its interests from legislation adverse to its industry. The work is ongoing.
